06 Jun 2013
Cold weather can make painting trickier. Standard waterborne paint can’t form a proper film at low temperatures as the acrylic base needs some warmth to make the particles soft enough to stick together. A paint film dried in the cold can crack and turn powdery.
To help you keep painting through winter, Resene has a range of wintergrade paints to suit a wide range of projects, including Resene Lumbersider low sheen, Resene Sonyx 101 semi-gloss, Resene Hi-Glo gloss, Resene X-200 low sheen and Resene Quick Dry – all designed for exterior use. Inside, if you use heating and appropriate ventilation you can continue painting over winter – check with Resene staff for advice.
